When I think of a normal, happy and adjusted Hollywood family, I obviously think of Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck and their three children: Violet, Seraphina and new baby Samuel. Don’t they always look oh so normal in their paparazzi photos? Jennifer in her sneakers and mom jeans, Ben in his too-lazy-to-shave beard and the girls in completely normal non-Suri-Cruise-like clothing.
It’s refreshing to see them among all the other famous families. You definitely get the feeling that they’re being raised by their parents and not a team of nannies, tutors and other assorted scientologists.
But just because they’re more normal than the average celebrity family doesn’t mean they’re not living the good life. This weekend Ben and Jen took the kids to the beach for a little fun in the sun. Totally average day, right?
That’s what I thought too, until I saw this photo of their beach picnic. While the rest of normals have to eat sandy chips on our damp towels, the Afflecks dine under a tent with a real table and what looks like real food. No warm sandwiches for this family. It’s all fresh salads, crisp vegetables and tasty treats for this family.
It’s just a nice little reminder that they’re insanely wealthy celebrities who eat gourmet beach picnics. Make sure to keep them in mind when you’re eating your lunch on the sand this summer and a seagull attacks you for your crumbs.
Violet Affleck certainly wouldn’t stand for that and neither should you.
